Flux Puppy – An open-source software application and portable system design for low-cost manual measurements of CO<inf>2</inf> and H<inf>2</inf>O fluxes
Manual chamber-based measurements of CO2 (and H2O) fluxes are important for understanding ecosystem carbon metabolism. Small opaque chambers can be used to measure leaf, stem and soil respiration.
